Yes, the "hey, sweetie" pushes the envelope just a tad. Next will be, "Can you run into the store for a packet of chips for me?"

I think she would have said, "It's my turn, innit?"

I'd heard somewhere that she was with her father today, so maybe it's true. And why wouldn't she offer to let someone go before her? She's not an ogre.

It's not what she did, it's the way she apparently said it. "Hey sweetie"? It just doesn't sound like something she would say.

Not knowing her personally, I don't know if she'd use the word "sweetie" or not. Be that as it may, whatever word she may or may not have used, there's no reason to think she wouldn't allow someone to go before her, or would order someone to go inside to get a snack for her.

My remark about the snack was facetious, nothing more, and wasn't meant to be taken literally. I thought attaching the grinning graphic would have gotten that message across.

It wasn't the specific wording ... rather, it was the implication, and that's fine. We're all entitled to our opinion. I simply stated mine. I didn't require an explanation.

I'm still confused here; I wasn't implying anything nor even approaching an opinion, just responding to a questionable report with some humor, the use of which can be touchy and misinterpreted around here at times. However, I can't help how anyone interprets an innocuous remark. A joke, a joke, my kingdom for a joke......

And now, I need a break from this tempest in a teapot!

I'm with you on this; the 'hey sweetie' seems a little out of character for the Duchess (unless of course she's addressing her husband in private). I just see her as someone who would be direct and say something like 'Would you like to go first?', without any unnecessary endearments attached.

Can't imagine 'hey sweetie' but perhaps they misheard and it was something more like....'hey excuse me'

I for one am in agreement here. I do not accept the fact that she said " hey sweetie". Maybe this person misunderstood what she said, if it even was the Duchess in the first place. Just my opinion.

She looks uncomfortable. Flats, little makeup and no smile. Hope that baby comes safely and soon.

One usually feels fedup in those last few weeks! Fed up with being preggers, fed up in having to visit the loo so often, fed up with your clothing choices--

I agree, she's on her down time and look very normal.

Agree. How often do we shop with a broad smile?
